Features

With this function you can use the quickview for the user status to set new user statuses when you are processing order operations and notification tasks or to revoke user statuses that have already been set. There is a new table column with the user status in the Operation Data for the order and the Task Data for the notification. If you have assigned a status profile on operation level, the system displays a list of all the user statuses that have been entered in the assigned status profile in the quickview for the User Status table column. In the quickview, you can set and reset all the user statuses that are not grayed out. If a status that has been set can be reset, Reset Status: prefaces the name of the status in the list. The system updates the User Status table column with the changes you make in the quickview. If you open the maintenance order or the maintenance notification in display mode, the quickview displays both the technical abbreviations and the descriptions for all the user statuses that have already been set.

Note Note

You can also display the new User Status table column and the quickviews for the table columns independently of the business function by implementing the SAP note 2148810Information published on SAP site. You can only change the user status in the quickview, however, if you have activated the business function.
